Pretzel Films on hunt for new graduate Director
Share This Article:
Calling all film-buffs! Are you a graduate or film maker looking for a full time job? Pretzel Films, the multi-award winning production company based in London, is bringing a different approach to the way new talent is discovered. For the first time they are asking recent graduates and directors (who have been working in the industry for under two years) to submit their best films to the 1st Annual Pretzel Film Directors Showcase. Entries must be in by 11th March and a panel of external industry experts, together with Pretzel, will create a shortlist, to be announced on 28th March and posted on Vimeo. The shortlist of successful applicants will be invited to Pretzel HQ in London to present their films in early April, and a winner will then be offered a paid full time job as a Pretzel Director. Every year since 2005 Pretzel have taken one new director on as a full time employee within the company, although this is the first time the competition has been run through a Directors Showcase. The company was founded by Pj Bickford, who was formerly Creative Director of Blue Juice Marketing, and Pete Shuttleworth, formerly Commercials Producer at Ridley Scott Associates and Black Dog Films.
